Saturday, August 19, 2017

If you look directly at the sun without wearing protective solar glasses, eye damage can occur within seconds of exposure, according to Marilyn Gordon, medical director for UnitedHealthcare of New Jersey.  “The sun is incredibly bright – some 400,000 times brighter than a full moon.

Saturday, August 19, 2017

Even knowing Peak Design makes the best camera bags, backpacks, and totes, we’re surprised by how much we love their latest camera strap and cuff. I’ve never liked a thin camera strap, or one that connected to a camera’s built-in eyelets, so I was justified but very wrong in not expecting much from Peak Design’s updated Leash. $40 The Leash is the first camera strap that’s not a mission to…

Friday, August 18, 2017

By capturing penguins and strapping them with video cameras, scientists created their own “penguin cam” to learn more about how birds communicate in the open ocean.
